The female lead was a little too stupid and whimpy for my taste. Although she toughen up a little towards the end, I found it hard to care what happened to her cause she was so stupid. I would have made her stronger with just a series of circumstances that ended her up where she was, not her being stupid and letting people walk on her.
I would have made my lead a little less whimpy.
Steve West's voice is perfect for this type of story. He did a great job with the characters. It was by far my favorite part of the book, listening to him.
I love how Phillippa Gregory takes the known facts about events and weaves them into a completely believable story. The intensive research she did really shows in her work. I learned things I never knew about good King Henry.
There were lots of memorable moments in this book. It is hard to believe the events were all the result of one woman's life, it was more like a day time soap opera, with a lot more violence and death.
I always enjoy listening to Bianca Amato's performances. She has a very good voice that brings the characters to life.
Just the facts!
The narrator had a good voice and was easy to listen too.
This was a unique approach to solving the age old mystery of who killed the Princesses in the Tower. I enjoyed that the author conducted a police investigation to come to his conclusions. Very interesting information and good research.
I thought the story progressed a little too slowly, and parts were dragged out too long.
The concept was interesting.
It does need a follow-up book, but I didn't enjoy the first one enough to read the second one.
I really felt like I was part of the experience the main character was going though as the world came to an end and he tried to survive. I liked that he was a good person and helped others try to make their way in this new world. That he was scared yet did what he had to do anyway.
I enjoyed the lead character and the dog Annabell.
The narrator has a really good voice for this book. He does a great job. Easy to listen too.
It made me what to know more about what happened to the survivors.
It was interesting to get a little back story about a character from the first book, but I wasn't a big fan of the first book, so it wasn't thrilling for me.
I enjoyed the performer's voice and characters very much, he did a good job. Easy to listen to.
It was entertaining, but not as captivating as the first book was.
There wasn't much of interest for me in this book. The main character spent a lot of time trying to get home, so I missed his interactions with his old crew of friends.
Maybe. I would see the first book as a movie for sure.
I think that for this story the audiobook is the best way to go. There are so many different characters speaking so many different types of language, Cajun, French, slang...I'm not sure a reader would even be able to pronounce some of the words, much less get the Cajun accent right, and Emma Galvin, the narrator does a great job of taking care of all of it for you.
I really enjoyed when Evie started to realize she was not a mortal, but part of something bigger.
I have listened to Emma Galvin in the Divergent series and I thought she did a great job with those books too.
I would have loved to listen to the book in one sitting, but I wasn't able to. I did listen to it every moment I could, and I will listen to it again.
I loved how well each character is developed with very unique backgrounds that are revealed to the reader as they are revealed to the lead character Evie. The author did a great job pulling you in to feel the indecision Evie was going through. I found myself reacting to the new knowledge about characters just as Evie had. So it was an emotional ride, and very fun.
I really liked when Evie decided that not everyone was "good" or "bad." "Good - Bad - Good." The story gave the characters more than one dimension to their personalities and this author did that very well.
Emma is a fantastic narrator. Her different voices for each character were so real I would sometimes forget the story was being read by one person.
It made me want more!
I enjoyed listening to the performance. I just didnt find the story interesting. Seemed to be for a younger audience. The actors did a fabulous job. The story was just a bunch of made up characters and places. I never felt there was any real threat to the characters, it was all just a little too bizarre for me.
The new Phillipa Gregory book.
I like Richard and Door.
Kids around 12 to 15 maybe, but I thought it was a little mean. Not funny like the first one.
The characters did very mean things.
